americana is a

VIBE

It’s a culture that grows up, around, and alongside everyday life like wildflowers. It’s untamable, with a color and character all its own. It’s eclectic shops, aromatic fare, inspired music, and a Main Street that has won a million hearts with its genuine, sophisticated charm. Franklin is where the roots of culture run deep.
